the attack. the obama administration initially blamed it on protests over an anti-muslim video. that story later shifted, raising questions about what the administration knew and when they knew it was actually a terrorist attack. >> i don't think that the intelligence community, in any way, politicized the intelligence they were providing to members of the administration or congress. i think they gave us their best initial assessments. >> reporter: when petraeus testifies today, he's expected to give a timeline of events leading up to and during the attack. there's been a lot of focus on petraeus' affair and whether his conduct compromised national security. petraeus isn't expected to talk about that, but solely about the benghazi situation. lawmakers say once they complete the hearings on the benghazi attack, they expect to hold a public hearing to disclose any information that isn't classified. rob and paula? >> in the hot seat in more ways than one. preteti arla, live for us in washington. thanks, preeti. >>> and today in washington, president obama holds critical meetings with lawmaker
. subsequent to this we found out of day one, the obama administration, the intel community, even knew it wasn't video, it was the terror attack. why would petraeus do it? was there something held over his head where he said go out there and say video? otherwise we'll blow it wide open. that is a theory. >> greg: obama should arrest the director of "fatal attraction" and say it caused her to go after paula broadwell. maybe petraeus didn't want to say certain things in the testimony. >> dana: he finally said, if broadwell had the final interview the week before the election. can you manual wha imagine the t the f.b.i. who had to con front david petraeus. what it's like to say by the way, sir, we know you've been having an apair with the biographer, because there is another woman upset about it. i wonder if he knew all along. i don't believe he was given a polygraph test when he went to afghanistan, running afghanistan to being the c.i.a. director. i'm not sure if it's out of line, but it seems to me a problem. >> kimberly: there should be in terms of how they hand this, the protocol to go in an

not to go in on the ground. the big difference this time is the obama administration that began to distance itself from israel. first term supporting israel. that is an interesting evolution on obama. hopeful one. >> chris: there are other differences, too. hamas has longer range missiles. middle east is different from 2012 of the middle east of 2008. the arab spring. run by the leaders of the muslim brotherhood. what are the challenges for israel and the u.s. now? >> if you look at the foreign policy portfolio that obama is facing. we still have problem of pakistan and iran. libya is not a stable situation. it only amplifies the problem. this is a dangerous world. it will get some hold on exactly what the policies are. what is the degree of toughness that we are going to employ? that is still in doubt. they held flurry of closed door sessions with the top administration officials. best as you can tell, because they were closed door, what did we learn about the administration actions before, during and after the attack? >> there were comments about whether it was a video or terrorist attack
consulate attack. >>> what lawmakers say they want to know about the attack from the obama administration. >> and happening right now, live, these are live pictures senate arms services committee is holding a confirmation hearing for joseph denver. he is slated to take over at commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. he would replace general john allen. allen was supposed to be pro momentsed to supreme allied commander in europe, but that's on hold right now. after questionable e-mails between allen and a woman in florida were discovered, it was part after investigation that led to the resignation of david petraeus, as ahead of the cia, because of an affair. >>> it is 7:09. breaking news, sal will tell us about it. >> reporter: i have two breakers. one is a house fire in san francisco. news chopper 2 is over this house fire, near the 101/260 interchange in san francisco. and just knowing a little bit about the area, this is an area where there have been plenty of house fires in the last year or two. it's kind of peculiar. firefighters say once portable heaters come in winter, the
and the senate want to know what went wrong, what members of the obama administration knew, what they knew it and why tke th-pbt do more to prevent the attack or respond in time. chief intelligent correspondent catherine herridge is live on capital hill with all of this. catherine the latest. let's start with the testimony of general petraeus and the testimony we just heard about that secretary clinton will attend. >> well, thank you, jenna and good morning. two important developments here on capitol hill. fox' confirmation this morning that the former cia director david petraeus will testify before the house and senate intelligence committees. these will be closed or classified sessions early friday morning, and also confirmation that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify here on the hill and give the read out, or the results of their internal review at the state department about the benghazi attack, and that announcement was made at the house foreign affairs committee a short time ago. >> further i would like to note that secretary clinton has committed to testifying before our
democrats and republicans. republicans are critical. they believed the obama administration should have known right away this was not as spontaneous attack. they want to know who knew what, when. did the president know about the attack? when did his national security team know about the attack? there were people in tripoli and libya with the state department saying there was not enough security concerns because of some of the things going on in libya at the time. good >> the senators made remarks about you in ambassador susan rice. what did they say? >> basically, they do not trust her. they think she should have known better. it looked to be a spontaneous response. they think it is clear there was an organized element. the white house is saying, and today we heard from a democrat who said the intelligence community reaffirmed that was the best information they had at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. now those intelligence committees, they will hear from david petraeus. what do they want to know from former director petraeus? >> they said this was going to
spectacle yesterday of missiles being launched into tel aviv. the obama administration has been supportive of israel. you've seen a lot of condemnation of israel by the nonalign movement led by iran. you would expect iran to twist the facts here. it will be a problem for the wider region if there is a war in gaza, obviously. it brings in the uneasy peace between egypt and israel, camp david accords we shepherded in 1979. egyptian prime minister is in gaza today. there's a three-hour truce. israelis have agreed not to strike while the prime minister is there. the israelis have been very careful to say publicly we want to maintain the peace treaty with egypt. i don't think the egyptians or hamas should be under any delusions here, if hamas rockets continue to be fired into israel, israelis have the responsibility to protect their population. >> egypt has reached out to president obama and the united states saying help us stop the violence there. so, ken, the united states is going to get sucked into this, regardless? >> no, i don't think the united states is going to get sucked in. they've p
to israel because israel is allied with the united states and they expect the obama administration will come down hard telling israel to cool it. megyn: what are we going to do, what should we do? >> one of the things he ought not to do is threaten to cut off israeli spare partsr parts for the f-15 and f-16s. there if they have to take out these rocket installations it will reduce the effectiveness of reprisals. this is a wise move. they are getting ready to take out the iranian nuclear sites. megyn: what a situation. we were watching the u.s. presidential election and the indiscretions of general petraeus and the middle east was falling into war about it looks of it. ollie north, thank you. the president wrapped up a meeting with conscious at leaders in a four avoid a massive wave of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts that will kick in january 1 unless something is done. it ended with what looked like a big handshake between the president and john boehner. james rosen has the report live from the white house. hey, james. >> reporter: house minority leader nancy pelosi says congress wants
from an election to have a terrorist attack that will expose the errors in policy of the obama administration. that is why they were so worried under that theory about in many that, in fact, this was al qaeda or another terrorist group. megyn: some democrats who were privy to these briefings, including representative adam smith say that the notion that a talking points were changed is completely wrong. still, we get diametrically opposing information. thank you for being here. megyn: thank you we will speak with the israeli ambassador to the united nations about what is looking like a possible ground war in the city of gaza. stay with us. flavorboost.com. megyn: more breaking news on our top story today. israel reportedly closing a series of roads heading into gaza. that comes just moments after the reuters news service report. asking to mobilize some 70,000 israeli troops. just think about that. 75,000 israeli troops, in what is being called preparation to a likely invasion of that area. this is not good. this is not there, folks. earlier today, the first time since 1970, at l
exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of stocks last week. we watched it on the business side, but what do you make of that? >> obviously a disap
said if you look at states where obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw much bigger gaps. >> chris: senator bayh, you know, it's interesting because i was thinking of 2004 as welch pendulum swings back and forth. after 2004 when bush had issues, and he still won, democrats were disspirited. obviously four years later they came roaring back. what do republicans need to do? >> two elections i'm thinking of, chris, number one, four years ago 2008 when some parts of the democratic party said this is a vote for a new progressive era and left-leaning government. it turns out that wasn't quite the case. our party needs to be modest in the mandate we take away from it. we need togone from progressive center out. then 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrat just lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. what did we do? we nominated michael dukakis who is a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts. it took three beatings for to us realize you have to make common cause of moderates. that is the internal struggle the republican have to go through. true to pr
scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,
more information from the obama administration on just what the heck happened in benghazi and around benghazi. he's scheduled to give a news conference at the bottom of the hour and we are going to have measure on that. our dana bash has been doing the best she can to take in all of the information. listen, this is tricky. so many of these stories are interconnected. there is a lot of reporting. not all confirmed, but u maybe just start with this. how has this matter worked out that general petraeus will indeed show up on capitol hill and testify voluntarily? >> well, it started with the senate intelligence chairwoman, dianne feinstein telling us yesterday that that was her desire. in her words, that's a big stone left unturned if petraeus doesn't come up here and tell members of congress what he knew about what went on in benghazi, so that's where it started. then late yesterday, members of the senate intelligence committee met and decided it was imperative to invite him. dianne feinstein told our ted barrett that petraeus has said he will come talk to the senate intelligence commit
tell fox director petraeus was wedded to the explanation of the obama administration that it was linked to the video and a demonstration that spun out-of-control. this is in stark contrast to a briefing on september 13, from the f.b.i., where they were told the evidence pointed to al qaeda. >> the documents we see that the c.i.a. had, the information they had, prior to general petraeus coming in it is impossible to believe he thought he was giving us honest testify. >>reporter: through the personal contact the general has insisted the resignation was not connected to ben goes. >>shepard: and the calls for a special committee? >>reporter: right now we have three tracks to the investigation: the first track is the warnings, the request for supreme court by the consulate that were denied before the attack. the second track is the administration's statement that it was a demonstration that spun out-of-control and response to the video. and, now, the third track, whether former director petraeus the statement to congress of the attack was impacted by the knowledge he was the focus of an f.b
may find out. the house ways and means committee says the obama administration has stonewalled request for information. forget co-pays. this illinois doctor charges only five bucks a visit. the 87-year-old doesn't even accept medical insurance. he claims it's not worth the hassle. he says he's just interested in helping people and not making much dough. all right. steve? >> steve: president obama yesterday held his first press conference in eight months and got testy when asked about the deadly attack in libya where four americans were murdered. >> i would like for you to address the families, if you can, on 9-11 as commander in chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> i'll address the families not through the press. i'll address the families directly as i already have. i can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they're safe. >> steve: so has the president been forth coming with the american people and is congress satisfied with his respon
americans and how the obama administration dealt with it. when general petraeus first briefed congress, he said he believed the cia believed the attack stemmed from a protest. but today it's a different story. he said he believed it was a terrorist attack after the hearing this morning some republicans said they are very frustrated with the conflicting information. >> he also stated that he thought all along he made it clear that there was significant terrorist involvement. and that is not my recollection. >> petraeus resigned over an extramarital affair. he has insisted the affair did not put national security at risk and no classified information was shared. we will stay on this story for you this morning and have the latest on ktvu. reporting live from washington, d.c. alison burns ktvu channel 2 news. >>> time right now 6:19. more bart trains are needed because so many more people are riding bart. the san francisco examiner reports bart expects to have a half million passengers a day riding bart trains in the coming years. and bart is going to need about 880 train cars to carry them al
. it's certainly a huge deal for the obama administration. we have new details about when and how the president was told about the allen bombshell. and the latest development, our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is joining us now. jessica, first of all, what are you learning? >> hi, wolf. we understand that the president was first told there might be trouble with general allen and this investigation on friday, when the white house's counsel office was notified that there could be trouble with his nomination to become nato supreme allied commander. then on monday evening, the president was notified that secretary of defense leon panetta has referred to matter to the defense department's inspector general. keep in mind, now, according to the timetable, the president had also just been told on thursday about general petraeus' indiscretions, so it must have been an awful lot to take in all in one week, right after the election. secretary -- press secretary jay carney says, though, it was out of the white house's hands, this time frame, for their notification. listen to
to the intelligence assessment. >> general, we have the gop still suggesting that the obama administration concealed the fact benghazi was a terror attack for political reasons. from what we have learned from general petraeus's testimony, doesn't it seem the administration held back information, if they did so it was because a genuine national security concern existed? >> well, you know, my take on this, alex, this is centralist political posturing inside washington. the problem was we had inadequate ground security there. that's a state department function, not cia. when the thing went bad we had this am bass do, bilingual in arabic, he shouldn't have been there. that was the problem. but -- characterized the mob was minutiae for good next sakes. libya is a mess. there's no government, no army. it's not a success. probably better than having that monster gadhafi and his family in charge of it. but that's the problem. they have to get their eyesight up. we've got a war in afghanistan going that's running us $6 billion a month and several hundred killed and wounded a month. and here we're focused on
i said, if you look more at the states where they -- the obama administration bombarded women with messages, you saw a much bigger gap. >> chris: it is interesting, because i was thinking of 2004 as we'll, the pendulum swings back and forth and after the 2004, which bush obviously had a lot of issues and, still won, the democrats were disspirited and four years later came roaring back, what do republicans need to do. >> two issues i'm thinking of, number one, four years ago, 2008, when some parts of the democratic party said this was a vote for a new progressive era and more left-leaning government and turned out that that was not quite the case and our party needs to be fairly modest then mandate we take away from this and governor from the center-out, progressive center, one and two, i'm thinking of 1988 from the republicans' perspective. democrats had lost two elections in a row to ronald reagan. and what did we do? nominated michael dukakis, a fine man but a liberal from massachusetts and the internal struggle republicans will go through, they have to be true to their prin
it tell us about the whole approach, the light footprint that the obama administration recommended. >> chris: what would that be? i haven't heard that phrase until today. but it is in the papers. >> the idea that once we had gadhafi out in libya, we weren't going to go in with a big new presence and huge new diplomatic installation and we were going to try and do more sort of with less as it were. >> chris: not in libya... >> and that is being applied across the region as well. >> chris: it is interesting, up to this point, secretary of state clinton has kind of avoided much fire of libya. she said that she was taking responsibility for it, but that was in the middle of the night, at an interview down in south america. and she has been absent from the hearings, so far. as they focus, maybe less on the timeline and more on the question of why these diplomats were so undefended, so vulnerable, with all the warnings before hand, could secretary clinton come under fire. >> she'll have to answer questions, but i imagine what she'll say is they didn't realize how vulnerable they were and
when the obama administration what prompted the attack. a spontaneous recognition to an anti muslim video, or terrorists >> then the cia director pretorius 3 km in september. now, impressions of that meeting are mixed. >> so much of this confusion arises because of the difference between what is classified and what is not classified. he has told us that this was a terrorist attack or if there were a terrorist involved from the start. i told him my questions, had a very different recollection of that. >> congre congressman's askiking said petraeus testified he had no to wreck involvement in developing the top ones used by susan rice. in early days after the attack the u.n. ambassador to the united nations pointed to the film as a potential cause. >> the key is that there were unclassified talking points at a very early stage. >> jacqueline: reporters are sat lawmakers are saying that- for transgendered was asking little about his affair with biographer paula broadwell anything that occurred with respect to disperse the situation has nothing to do with the way he handled benghazi at a
to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca
done? i don't really see any sanctions or any aggression from the obama administration on north korea. i know there are talks going on but specifically president obama dealing with 25-year-old kids, i believe, should be done. i think president obama could actually talk to him and maybe get back to the six-party talks. i would like to know your opinion on that. guest: i think that's a good question. you know, you mentioned the new leader of north korea, kim jong il's favorite son is now in power. i don't think there's a great deal we know about him. north korea is a famously closed society. and the obama administration's policy has been relatively consistent. there's certainly a fear of nuclear exploration. there's been shakeups in the north korea military now. wlorn that's an internal power strug, we don't know. "foreign policy" has done some reporting on this, where one of the generals was purged an perhaps killed by mortar fire. in terms of six-party talks, those are ♪ been ongoing for a long time. perhaps that's something obama will bring to the table on his asia trip but there i

keep their centrifuges spinning. but we're in, again, close consultation with the obama administration about ways of preventing iran from acquiring military nuclear capabilities. that conversation is very intimate, very close and continuous. >> does that mean you don't have a problem or you do have a problem? >> i want to say we're talking about it very closely. >> i'll leave it at that. >> thank you. >> mr. ambassador, thanks very much for coming in. >>> an fbi probe explodes into a scandal that takes down the cia director. we're learning new details of how that investigation unfolded and the privacy concerns it's now raising. ♪ [ male announcer ] from our nation's networks... ♪ ...to our city streets... ♪ ...to skies around the world... ♪ ...northrop grumman's security solutions are invisibly at work, protecting people's lives...

the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of this base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care which is basically $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political strategy which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what, they'll vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming an entitled society, that some a
to that post. >> it tells you a great deal about the obama administration that the secretary of defense is a consolation prize. this would be a remarkable insult to the men and women in uniform to nominate for secretary of defense a man who made his political career trashing our military. criticizing it. who told lies about war crimes in vietnam and more recently joked about how side and uneducated our soldiers are. i don't want to hear john kerry is a combat veteran. so is benedict and nold. >> are you out of your mind? john kerry got the silver star for his service in street a number. this is not about running for president. it's about swift boating people. john kerry would be a great addition to the president's staff. i have known him since 1985 and he never mentioned he would like to be the secretary of defense. he wrote foreign relations, foreign relations, foreign relations as his three choices for committee assignment. megyn: he wouldn't bronze star and silver star. the reports were he threw hose medals over a fence in protest. a lot of veterans protested the war. but he did toni
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
senior officials in the obama administration looking to leave for the second term. secretary of state lilg healthing hillary rodham clinton and leon panetta both expected to depart. likewise, the president might have to find replacement for treasury secretary timothy geithner and attorney general eric holder if they decide that they, too, would like to leave. toipt bring in our white house correspondent briana keiller to talk about just more on the president's plate here. how does this add to what he needs to get done starting in the next year? >> it really adds to it. i mean, you've got this issue, obviously, that comes after any re-election. the turnover of the cabinet, suzanne, but just think of the big plate that this is being added to. first offer, the fiscal cliff. that is obviously the biggest issue that president obama has to deal with. you're looking at tax cuts that expire at the very end of december, and then those spending cuts that are set to kick in on january 2nd. as he works, obviously, figuring out the new faces on his cabinet. he has his anything raugs on january 20t
, there was some covert action program going on in libya. i think the agency and the obama administration are trying to figure out how to deal with that. it could include some very embarrassing information related to the program. we don't know exactly what it is, it could be related to syria, it could be related to, perhaps, the militia group that carried out the benghazi attack. so these are important questions that need to be answered, and by sidelining petraeus in this way through his resignation, certainly it's going to be harder to get at those questions at least for independent investigators, say, on capitol hill. shannon: he may not testify this week as was planned, but i talked with a number of lawmakers this weekend who said they do intend, if necessary, to subpoena him, even in his roam as a private citizen -- role as a private citizen now. do you think he'll resist it or a welcome it to testify to something that maybe the investigation didn't want him to talk about publicly? >> well, the question is not so much whether he will testify, it's what he will say when he testifies an
to deliver on friday, now unburdened by the constraints of his old job, no longer a member of the obama administration, if he might be a little more free to talk about what he really knows about what happened in libya? >> i think it's a great point but know, rick, that would be even worse because it would suggest that he did sort of cave to pressure in the previous testimony. so, if he does anything to change any of it, i think that, that it becomes that much more serious. quite frankly i think it becomes sort of indefensible for the intelligence committee to protect, you know, the intelligence community from that sort of scrutiny and from making this stuff public. i just, i can not understand what the justification would be for them to not let this stuff become public just because of the soap opera angle to all of it. rick: charlie hirt, columnist with the "washington times." charlie, thanks so much. >> thanks, rick. jenna: this just in. lawmakers hearing testimony now on capitol hill trying to get to the bottom of that deadly meningitis outbreak we've been talking so much about that w

into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the

the obama administration as of today that wisconsin will throw up its hands, basically and leave that responsibility of organizing those exchanges to the federal government. his decision really not unexpected given his long opposition to this law. he stopped implementation last year on the hopes that the law would be overturned either by the u.s. supreme court or by republicans following the november election, but that was not to be, so now scott walker says that he will not take any responsibility for that. that will go back to the federal government. bill: sandy was so devastating as we know. we are learning that houses of war sheurp eve worship are struggling to help themselvesment lauren green is live. what did you find out. >> houses of worships are supposed to be sanctuaries for the broken hearted. countless are in great need of healing themselves. the repair work has done in bay head, new jersey but the road ahead is hrofpblgt the historic structure was built in the late 1800s and designed by boat builders but was never meant to withstand the urge of dirty bay water that s

and months, it just doesn't wash, because if they knew all about this, why would the obama administration put general allen's name up for nomination, release a statement praising his service, schedule all these hearings, fly him here from afghanistan, only to have all this fall apart at the last minute. if they knew all these details, it just doesn't make a lot of sense. >> and why are they searching her home if, in fact, it's just about a sexual relationship between biographer and her subject. all right, chris lawrence, thank you. general john allen, of course, denying any wrongdoing as we've mentioned. nick paton walsh was recently on the ground with the troops in afghanistan. he's in beirut for us this morning. tell me a little bit about general john allen. i think that there's so many things that are so complicated about this story. so give us some insight into who he is and how he treats certainly the folks who, who served with him. >> very much respected career soldier. he became the head of u.s. forces in the nato campaign in afghanistan. a man with acute understanding of the problems
